We're Off to See the Wizard!...
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
Over 100 years ago lived a man who loved to entertain neighborhood children by telling magical fantasy stories to them. The children adored the stories. Then, on the evening of May 7th, 1898, a little girl asked him, in reference to the wonderful characters he had created, “Where do they live?” The man looked at a filing cabinet in the room. The top drawer was labeled A-N… the bottom drawer was labeled O-Z. And on this night was born the land that is now so much a part of our culture. This man’s name was L. Frank Baum, and he is the reason for The Wizard of Oz. He wrote a book on this marvelous land that he had created, and nearly 40 years later, MGM bought the film rights for Oz from Samuel Goldwyn. And so was born a classic motion picture, that has now been enchanting millions for over 60 years. It’s as American as apple pie…its
The Wizard of Oz.
